      Young (knee) will start training camp on the physically unable to perform list.

      Campanaro (toe) will open training camp on the physically unable to perform list.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Campanaro is still dealing with a toe injury that he's suffered from since May, and while the expectation was that the wideout would be ready in time for camp, he'll still need some extra time to rehab.

  • Adam Jones DB - cin
    • Fri, Jul 21, 9:36am

      Jones has been suspended for one game for violating the league's personal conduct policy, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Jones' punishment comes after he pleaded guilty to obstruction of official business following a January arrest stemming from a confrontation outside a Cincinnati hotel. In the wake of that ugly run-in -- which was notably made public through the release of police video -- Jones received a public show of support from Bengals owner Mike Brown, so his latest suspension isn't anticipated to threaten his future with the team. Nonetheless, his expected absence from the season opener will leave Cincinnati without its top cornerback and kick returner for a divisional clash against the Ravens.

      Bears ILB Danny Trevathan (knee) may not be ready in time for the start of training camp.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Trevathan, who ruptured the patellar tendon in his right knee late last November, is a candidate to open training camp on the PUP list. Fortunately, fellow linebackers Lamarr Houston (knee-ACL), Willie Young (knee), Pernell McPhee (shoulder) and Leonard Floyd (concussion) all should enter training camp at near-to-full strength, and if all -- including Trevathan, whenever he returns to health -- can stay off the injury report this season, expect much improved production from a defense that was ravaged by injury in 2016.

      Panthers DE Charles Johnson (back) is expected to be healthy in time for training camp.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Carolina opens training camp July 25 and Johnson, who underwent an offseason procedure to repair a herniated disc, should be in attendance considering he isn't known to have suffered any sort of setback in his rehab. The selection of Daeshon Hall out of Texas A&M in the third round of the draft serves as an insurance policy of sorts if anything were to happen to him, but if everything goes as planned the Panthers look to field a fearsome defensive line in 2017 behind the likes of a healthy Johnson, the Panthers' all-time sack leader in Julius Peppers and defensive tackles Kawann Short and Star Lotulelei. With Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis adding All-Pro support from linebacker, expect this unit to remain among the league leaders in sacks for the third year in a row.

      The Bills defense enters training camp without injuries to any of its key players.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: In fact, out of all the players the Bills have rostered on the defensive side of the ball, only Shareece Wright is dealing with anything at all after the depth corner injured his calf in OTAs. Other than that, this unit is in great shape at this stage in the year. Shaq Lawson, the team's 2016 first-rounder who underwent arthroscopic knee surgery this offseason, and Reggie Ragland, 2016's second-rounder whose entire rookie year was derailed by an ACL tear, are both back to their disruptive ways and should greatly benefit from entering training camp healthy as they approach their second seasons in the league. Speaking of training camp, which opens July 26 for the Bills, all eyes will be on the cornerback group as the team searches for someone to step up in the wake of Stephon Gilmore's departure for New England.

      Ravens ILB C.J. Mosley (shoulder) is expected to be ready in time for training camp.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: To address a concern unrelated to the calf injury that prevented Mosley from participating in this year's Pro Bowl, Mosley underwent offseason surgery to correct a shoulder problem. He was able to participate in workouts and walk-throughs during spring practices but was held short of getting any action in live drills. However, with no concern over his availability for the start of the regular season, prospective owners of the Ravens D/ST needn't stress too much over the unit not having the leader of the defense for the first few weeks of the season.

      Cardinals OLB Markus Golden (foot), ILB Deone Bucannon (ankle) and DE Robert Nkemdiche (hamstring) enter training camp with injuries.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Golden, the Cardinals' reigning sack leader, is battling plantar fasciitis and while his situation doesn't appear to be anything serious now, this is an injury that can potentially linger for months and could ultimately factor into Golden's effectiveness, if not playing time, in 2017. Bucannon, on the other hand, is aiming to be back for Week 1 after undergoing ankle surgery in May but isn't certain to be ready in time. Fortunately, if Golden or Bucannon were to miss any action, Arizona has one of the deepest linebacking rotations in the league that was only further bolstered by the selection of Haason Reddick in the first round of the draft. The greatest concern on the defense remains on the defensive line, which was already thin before Robert Nkemdiche hurt his hamstring during OTAs. He should be ready to go sometime in training camp, but if he suffers any sort of setback the defensive front will be in serious trouble.

  • Devontae Booker RB - den
    • Wed, Jul 19, 6:33pm

      Less than a year removed from two knee surgeries, Booker hit a rookie wall in 2016, but is poised to improve during his sophomore campaign, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Rumors flew after the 2016 draft that, had Denver not been able to nab Paxton Lynch, Booker was on its radar in the first round. He slid to the fourth, while his quick-twitch style paired with a bruising physique made many wonder how long it would take for Booker to capture Denver's lead job. It ended up being after Week 7, as C.J. Anderson's season-ending knee injury left Booker as Denver's top dog. It didn't work out as Booker averaged just under three yards per carry for the rest of the season. He did show flashes as a talented all-around back, however, including his 109-total-yard performance in Week 17, during which he scored two touchdowns. The Broncos depth chart, outside of Booker, is deep, but features a ton of question marks including the inconsistent Anderson, injured Jamaal Charles and inexperienced De'Angelo Henderson. That depth might make it difficult for Booker to get too many touches. The quality of that depth could also mean that Booker is the Broncos' lead back before long.

      Falcons EDGE Takkarist McKinley (shoulder) won't be ready for the start of training camp.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The Falcons' first-round pick in this year's draft, McKinley is recovering from March shoulder surgery and his rehabilitation is expected to continue past training camp's July 26 start date. The UCLA product dealt with a torn labrum and fractured shoulder socket during his final two years of college but played through the injuries without realizing their severity. Thankfully, there doesn't appear to be any concern over his availability for the preseason, let alone the regular season, when the disruptive rookie should make for a strong complement to the NFL's reigning sack leader, Vic Beasley.
